At A Glance:
Combining the exceptional comfort found on the Leap chair with rich materials and elegant design, the WorkLounge is the ideal seating option for when you want to think, concentrate, work or relax. Match it with the multi-purpose ottoman* that moonlights as a work table and you've got yourself an extremely comfortable place to lounge and work, all at the same time.
What's To Like:
Standard features include your choice of high-quality Elmo Soft Leather, polished aluminum base and back frame, 5-point glides, height-adjustable seat, extra cushioned headrest with flip-up pillow, and generously upholstered arms for added comfort. That's a whole lot of comfort all in one place.
What's Not to Like:
The starting price on this chair is almost $3000, which is pretty steep. You can get a lot of great lounge chairs with some of the same features for a lot less dough. But will they have all the adjustable features of the WorkLounge? It's your call - Steelcase obviously knows this chair's worth a good bit of money.
The Bottom Line:
If the Leap WorkLounge were a pop song, it would be Outkast's "The Way You Move." The price tag isn't pretty, but the chair is, and the ergonomics of the back and seat are hard to beat. This is high quality in an office chair.
Options include the multi-use ottoman* and hard floor or carpet casters for additional mobility.
